Bad Teacher

Bad Teacher is a dark comedy about the trials and tribulations a 20-something female teacher faces in a London based Sixth Form College. This one-woman show, inspired by real life experiences, will confront audiences with eye opening truths about gender politics, mental health, and the outrageous expectations that our current educational system sets for students and teachers alike. Evie, the titular teacher, takes audiences through each lesson, such as "Be Bold, Be Braless" and “Work Hard, Play Harder”, culminating in Parents Evening. The groundbreaking script is unabashedly funny, unflinchingly realistic, and unashamedly female.
